    Ive just had a weird thought, it has only just occured to me that no one ever actually sees their own face in the flesh. In order to see yourself it has to either be a reflection or a photo and neither give an 100% accurate reflection cause of the type of mirror glass and cameras hide/enhance faults. Has everyone thought this before or is it just me lol?

    Can anyone every see a 100% accurate version of anything, since everyone has different flaws in their eyes, nerves and brain that mean we see everything slightly different to everyone else? Which leads us to ask the question is there a 100% accurate vision of anything, and if so how do we judge that?

    Haha same. And then people always tell me I look far better in real life than in photos. It's confusing.

    I disagree. My nose is large enough to see without even trying.

    Though there was that "mirror"-type invention invented a while back where the glass was all bumpy, so viewers could see themselves in the way seen by others...

    this is rubbish. When u see someone, you are sensing the light which is not absorped by the atoms on their skin, and is thus reflected. You see the exact same when you look into a mirror, except the light has simply bounced off a mirrored surface.
